    Kallen,

    I love the quilt in your avatar. He is dressed like boot camp graduation. Nice gift, not a quick quilt like mine is.

    The quilt is beautiful. Thanks for the pattern too. My husband served in the Marines, so this might be a special project gift for him.

    He will have time to use it because his ship date is not until March. He is enrolling in college to get some credits before going.

    Yup! It was his graduation at MCRD. He really loves that quilt and uses it all the time. Made me feel good. :-)

    Hi Jeank,
    Where did you find the fabric? We live within a couple of hours to Camp LeJuene and the Wounded Warrior Program. Would love to make some lap quilts for that Program and the fabric would be perfect. Thanks in advance for the info.

    I'm also a mother of a former Marine who retired June 2007 after twenty years. God Bless him and the best of luck.

    Beautiful quilt. Proud of him for joining the Marines. My husband was in the Marines and we lived in California at Oceanside for a little over a year.
